    A Republican legislator, and soon-to-be primary opponent to the Lt. Gov. if I'm remembering correctly, speaking to NPR yesterday, claimed it was an opportunistic switch in the face of the fact that the tax break he was whipping half an hour before changing his stance was going nowhere. Can't find a transcript of the show, but there's this, cribbing from AP.
    Sen. Michael Williams, another Republican candidate for governor who had opposed the Delta tax cut before the NRA controversy, praised Cagle's statement, saying his political rival 'is feeling the pressure that we are putting on him.' He applauded Cagle for listening to what he says is the 'vast majority' of Republican senators who now want to quash the proposed jet fuel tax cut."
    Interesting since the local press has been reporting it as if it had been a done deal until Cagle stepped in

    I'm always still in trouble again

        It's a risky game, playing around with major employers tax cuts. Sometimes they end up moving to a friendlier state.
